APHA Paints the Trails in the Bluegrass State

With sunny skies above you and green grass below your feet, summer is the perfect season to spend more time in the saddle. Looking for a fun way to kick off your summer riding schedule in style? Make plans to join APHA on the Triple R Ranch Ride June 4–8 in McKee, Kentucky.

Paint enthusiasts hit the trails the Daniel Boone National Forest last year for the inaugural trail ride, and the event was such a success that we’re bringing it back! Enjoy the extensive network of lakes and trails that will take you and your Paint through rolling hills and hardwood forests.


“This ride is a hidden jewel,” said APHA Ride America Director Cindy Grier, who explored the trails aboard her Paint during last year’s event. “The weather and trails were terrific, but they were totally overshadowed by the hospitality of Triple R Ranch and the entire McKee community—they were very supportive and wanted to make sure our riders had the time of their lives. The facilities were very nice and the food was tremendous.”


A variety of housing and stalling options are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, so reservations are required.


All riders enrolled in APHA’s Ride American program earn double hours during the Triple R Ranch ride—get enrolled today online or by calling (817) 222-6413. 

For more information about the Triple R Ranch ride, contact Brad Hornsby at (606) 305-6343 or email. And be sure to check out APHA’s rules of the ride. See you in Kentucky!
